Bernie Miklasz posted a good read on Brian Quick in the St Louis Post-Dispatch, saying that the Rams were too quick (pun intended) to name him "the next Terrell Owens." To date, Quick has earned a total of six snaps on offense, per Pro Football Focus, and was inactive for Week 3's game against Chicago.
Of course, Owens also got off to a slow start to his NFL career as a relatively highly-drafted rookie coming out of Division I-AA UT-Chattanooga. His first three games totaled three receptions for 32 yards, and he was similarly inactive in his third week as a professional, and didn't become an every-week starter until his second season.
Of course, in order to become a starter, first he has to get on the field, something Quick knows too well. "Obviously, it's something I have to do to get on the field. So I need to work harder, I need to do things a little bit better. And we'll see what happens."
With all that said, where is your wor...

ST. LOUIS Michael Brockers wouldnt say what he did with the big, bulky boot he was forced to wear on his right foot the past few weeks. But rest assured, he gladly disposed of it.
Oh yeah, its gone, Brockers said. Thats a taboo. You dont want to keep that around. Get that thing away.
The defensive lineman was back on the field Wednesday, practicing for the first time since suffering...
ST. LOUIS (AP) St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson did not practice for the second straight day Thursday while nursing a nagging groin injury.
While Jackson watches, rookie Daryl Richardson has been making his mark with Seattle up next on Sunday.

ST. LOUIS (AP) Looking for a sure thing on offense three games into the Jeff Fisher era with the St. Louis Rams? It might be Greg Zuerlein.
The rookie kicker is 8 for 8 on field goals this season, including a 56-yarder last week - 1 yard shy of the franchise record.
Sam Bradford passed for 310 yards and three touchdowns two weeks ago, but didn't get the Rams into the end zone...
Last week: 22 (-11)
Their defense is the real deal and they’ll play spoiler to a few teams. They’ve had a tough schedule, as well. However, the NFC is loaded and Sam Bradford is not a good enough quarterback to succeed behind this patchwork offensive line, which will remain patchwork for the foreseeable future. Steven Jackson is also at that age where running backs...
Scary as it may seem, this Rams offense has made progress. Okay, feel free to read on once you’re done face palming at the concept of this offense being an improvement.

It seemed as though the St. Louis Rams had turned a major corner in their home opener against the Washington Redskins. No longer the impotent doormat patsies of recent years, these Rams have fight in them. These Rams are if nothing else, entertaining to watch. Then the Rams went up to Chicago and returned to [...]
Rams running back Steven Jackson was held out of practice for the second straight day Thursday while nursing a nagging groin injury, the Associated Press reports.
Jackson was held to 29 yards on 11 carries last week in a 23-6 loss at Chicago and his 3.4-yard average per carry is by far the worst of his career. Jackson averaged 17 carries per game last year and 20 in 2010, but the...
Just in time for the start of division play this Sunday against Seattle, the Rams should have first-round draft pick Michael Brockers back in the lineup.
Brockers, a defensive tackle from LSU, missed the first three games with a high ankle sprain. It may take a couple weeks for Brockers to get back to where he was before the injury, but he should provide a run-stopping boost to...
Although controversial calls — or, in some instances, the lack thereof — have certainly marred the first three weeks of the NFL season, an objective look at each team's performance will show that this is probably the most competitive season the league has had in a while.
No one could have predicted the following tidbit before the season: only three teams (Arizona Cardinals...
Brian Quick, the No. 33 overall pick in last year's draft, was on the inactive list Sunday as the St. Louis Rams took a beating from the Chicago Bears.
The Rams had one of the worst passing offenses in the NFL last year, and they drafted Quick, a 6'3" wide receiver out of Appalachian State, with the hope that he would help their anemic passing game.
In this review, I am humbled. The Rams did everything I asked and lost. In fact, part of the reason why they lost is they could not get away from the game plan I asked for. The bears were prepared for the steady Eddy approach set forth below, and they wanted the ball in the middle of the field. The bears flooded the middle of the field with linebackers and defensive backs...
